A New Quirky Travel Photo Series
It’s been a while since I’ve done a Travel Photo of the Week, mostly because I felt like I “had” to do one every week. And when it becomes a chore (or a commitment), well then that just feels like a having a “real” job. And we all know how that one turned out. (If you don’t, you can read about it here: Growing Old Before My Time.)
But I’ve been sitting on a stockpile of photos here that occupy that no-man’s land somewhere just below a full blog post, but somewhere just above an Instagram. So a Travel Photo Series it is then. I get to unload, ahem…present some photos (at my pace), and hopefully you get a chuckle or two.
So welcome to the inaugural edition of Offbeat Images where I offer up some quirky, unusual, or wonderfully weird photos of stuff. (That’s it, just stuff.)
Nizwa Fort, Oman
I’ve had a inexplicable fetish for all things toilet-y for quite some time (Honolulu Loo anyone?), so these bathroom signs at the Nizwa Fort in Nizwa, Oman were like porn to me. My own private porcelain porn.
Is that a dagger in your pocket, or are you just happy to see me?
He’s wearing a dishdasha, she’s wearing an abaya. And I think she may only have one glove à la Michael Jackson as well, but I’m pretty certain that’s not a requirement. They could’ve jazzed up the wheelchair folks a bit though. I think they’ve earned it.
